"In a breathless story somehow presented as a groundbreaking revelation, The New York Times recently reported that the Pentagon is -- shocker! -- using all sorts of media channels to market itself to the nation’s children. Though the Times presents this as a brand-new development, it is nothing of the sort. The armed forces have spent the last three decades carefully constructing a child-focused Military-Entertainment Complex, which has long had the Pentagon subsidizing everything from video games to movies — most of which glorify militarism to kids."
